"Great playing Jeff and a real nice sounding banjo. That a Deering?
BTW - do they open that iron cell door, the one behind you, at any particular time or just when you need feeding. Is it part of playing the banjo to be behind such a strong looking…"
"I'm probably with you on this one Ganon - I like the idea of playing along with backing tracks, but would also like to know how to do the backing myself. So when learning how to get through the chords I arrive at a point where I can make a…"
This group is for those that have recently started working with Dan Miller's Flatpicking Essentials Series, and want to share their thoughts and support each others development. General idea is, as a group, to actively work through F.E. together.
"Thanks Robert, that would be great. If you send in any form you have I'll work out a way to look at it. If you send as a Midi file I can open in Sibelius and adjust the timing. I know the song pretty well as it was given to me in the 50's…"

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years.

I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke.

"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
